Frequently Asked Questions

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental treatment aimed at enhancing the appearance of teeth by removing surface stains and discoloration. It can result in brighter and whiter teeth. There are different methods of teeth whitening, including in-office treatments and at-home options, with varying time frames and costs. Store-bought whitening toothpastes may be a cost-effective solution, but they typically take longer to produce noticeable results. On the other hand, in-office whitening is generally quicker, but it may result in sensitivity for individuals with naturally sensitive teeth.

What products does smile science use?

Opalescence Family of Whitening Products - Smile Science Dental Spa - Glendale, AZ

We use Opalescence Go and Opalescence Boost at Smile Science. Opalescence Go comes in pre-filled, disposable whitening trays that are ready for use out of the box. It is intended for people who lead busy lives and need an easy and convenient way to whiten their teeth on the go (pun intended).

Opalescence Boost is our in-office product. Because it uses a higher concentration of hydrogen peroxide, it must be supervised by a dentist. Also, people with naturally sensitive teeth may be more likely to experience increased sensitivity with Opalescence Boost than they will with Opalescence Go.

Is teeth whitening safe?

When performed under the supervision of a dentist, or when using an at-home whitening kit that is approved by the American Dental Association, teeth whitening is generally considered safe. However, with any procedure there are potential risks. The use of peroxides, which chemically bleach teeth, can cause chemical burns when not used correctly. Whitening toothpastes, which mechanically abrade teeth, can lead to enamel damage with inappropriate and prolonged use. To minimize these risks, it's recommended to follow the instructions provided by the dentist or manufacturer and only use products approved by the ADA.

Will my teeth be sensitive?

It's very common for patients with naturally sensitive teeth to experience increased sensitivity during and after whitening. Although temporary, tooth sensitivity can make it difficult to eat, drink, or even focus. But, rest assured, it will not harm your teeth. To alleviate tooth sensitivity while bleaching, we may recommend using desensitizing toothpaste, fluoride gel, or over-the-counter pain relievers like Tylenol or Ibuprofen. In nearly all cases, the sensitivity will improve within a few days of whitening.

How long does whitening last?

The duration of teeth whitening depends on many factors which include your dietary habits, natural tooth color, oral hygiene, and certain external factors that may increase staining. In most cases, whitening can last anywhere from 6 to 12 months with proper care. It's important to avoid beverages such as red wine, coffee, and tea. Also, you should schedule regular dental cleanings to maintain the overall appearance of your teeth.

Is whitening the same as bleaching?

Teeth whitening and teeth bleaching are often used interchangeably. In fact, even the American Dental Association doesn't distinguish between them. However, there is a subtle difference between the two terms.

Teeth whitening refers to the overall process of restoring teeth to their natural color. This may be achieved using mechanical abrasives (whitening toothpastes), or chemical bleach (peroxides).

Teeth bleaching on the other hand, refers to the use of substances such as hydrogen peroxide, or carbamide peroxide, to enhance the whiteness of teeth beyond their natural color. This is impossible to achieve with mechanical abrasives such as whitening toothpaste.

Does whitening work for all types of stains?

Teeth whitening can effectively remove common surface stains caused by things like coffee, tea, and tobacco. However, it may not be as effective for internal stains that have developed due to injury, antibiotics, or chemical processes. Additionally, white spot lesions cannot be treated with whitening. In such cases, internal bleaching, also known as walking bleach, may be a viable option for removing internal tooth discoloration. The process can take several weeks and may require multiple visits to the dentist, depending on the severity of the stains.

Can I whiten existing dental work?

Unfortunately no. Teeth whitening only works on natural teeth. In cases where there is visible dental work on front teeth, we may need to consider replacing the dental work after whitening your teeth to achieve the smile you are after.
